Case Manufacturer Promises iPad mini-like iPad 5

Case manufacturers lost their credibility when it comes to unannounced Apple products due to the tear-drop iPhone 5 debacle of 2011. However, accessory manufacturer MiniSuit claims to know the iPad 5 design specifications, and has sent out an image of their upcoming iPad 5 case anyway. The image shows how the iPad 5 differs from the iPad 4 by featuring a more iPad mini-like profile.

Recent rumors have suggested the iPad 5 will feature a narrower bezel and thinner design. Jeremy Horwitz of iLounge, who claims to have seen a physical model of the fifth-generation tablet, said "calling [the iPad 5] a 'stretched iPad mini' is very close to entirely accurate". If MiniSuit's "reliable soure" is correct, the nwely designed iPad 5 calls into a question a recent iPad mini leak.

2013 iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 Rumor Roundup

If you believe analysts and the rumor mill, Apple will be releasing a record number of iOS devices this year. There is the iPhone 5S, iPhone mini or "low-cost" iPhone, iPhone Math, the iPad 5 and iPad mini 2. The iPhone Math rumor was based on a poorly translated Chinese news report, however, the original rumor stated Apple would be releasing three iPhones in 2013. While it's safe to assume Apple is only working on the iPhone 5S and a low-cost iPhone, it's possible that Tim Cook and team are gearing up to refresh the entire iPhone lineup with three new devices. That would make the iPhone Math rumor plausible, minus the goofy mistranslated name.

iPad Rumors

While there are a lot of wild iPhone rumors floating around, it's just the opposite for the iPad. The iPad mini is only expected to get an upgrade so it can catch up with its bigger brother. This means a 7.9-inch Retina display, an upgraded processor, and more RAM. It has been rumored that Apple is toying with the idea of releasing the new iPhone in an array of different colors, maybe they will do the same with the iPad mini too... But that's doubtful.
